Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

ACTION: Notice.
    The Department of Defense has submitted to OMB for clearance, the 
following proposal for collection of information under the provisions 
of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).


    Title and OMB Number: Women's Health Care in the Field Environment; 
OMB Number 0720-(to be determined).
    Type of Request: New Collection.
    Number of Respondents: 250.
    Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Annual Responses: 250.
    Average Burden per Response: 15 minutes.
    Annual Burden Hours: 63.
    Needs and Uses: This collection of information will be used by The 
Ohio State University, College of Nursing, Military Nursing Research 
Center (MNRC) and the Department of Defense to determine the scope of 
the problem of gynecologic infections experienced by military women and 
to demonstrate the need for self-care alternatives to current health 
care resources for women in austere military environments such as field 
duty, deployment to a second or third world country, combat/combat 
support situations, or sea duty. There are no existing databases that 
can provide this type of information, but it is an extremely important 
issue for many military women. The beneficiaries of the results of this 
study will be military women who serve in the active and reserve 
components of the Armed Forces.
    Affected Public: Individuals or households.
    Frequency: One time.
    Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
